We’re going to play another game of catch up. I get so behind on these posts but my OCD tendencies won’t let me skip them, and I really want to write a recap of the race I did earlier this month, so today we’re playing catch up. Lots of pictures of what we did in September and October and maybe, hopefully, I won’t get behind again. I wouldn’t hold your breath though 😉
So, we spent part of our Spring Break at Disney World. We’ll file this one under “not the brightest idea ever”. Since we have season passes to Disney, we’re blacked out from the beginning of June to mid-August. That means when April rolls around, I start to freak out at the idea of not going (I know, the horror!) for a few months so we try to cram a few visits in. Our schedule is jam packed on weekends so we decided to for a few days during Spring Break. Bad idea when you have kiddos that are not used to being there when it is busy. Oh well, live and learn!
Do you ever have those days where you just wonder if you’re invisible? I don’t know what was going on yesterday, but I seriously felt like I was. To explain, I need to rewind a bit though.. to this..
Sooo.. the 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon. That was fun. I’m going be be 100% honest here and say that if it weren’t for the fact that my husband and friends were running this race, there’s a good chance that it would have been my first DNS.
Just about a week and a half ago (heyyy look at me getting a post up in a timely manner!!), Adam and I loaded up the car and were headed to Orlando for the 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon weekend. I debated which I should post first – a general overview of what we did over the weekend or a recap of the race. I decided to talk about the weekend first. As soon as we arrived at the Wide World of Sports, I met up with Andrea and we headed over to the Cigna Blogger Cook-Off. Cigna is the official sponsor of the Walt Disney World Marathon and I was really excited when I received the email inviting me to the event.
I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I’ve written here. Yikes. I didn’t intentionally take a break – I’ve actually started to write a recap of the Wine & Dine Half Marathon weekend at Epcot a few times, but just never really felt up to it. I thought that maybe once the race pictures were posted, it would inspire.. something. The one picture taken of me while running the race didn’t do much to inspire anything though. It actually bummed me out a little. Long story short (I’ll explain more later), Adam and I had a really great weekend. Wine & Dine is probably my most favorite race and I enjoyed it. However, the race itself was a bit ho-hum this year since the weather didn’t really cooperate and I hurt my hip while running, so instead of finishing happy and all smiles, instead I was cold, wet, in pain, and bummed.
If you have little ones and you’ve never participated in the Run Disney kids races, you absolutely should! Like, go to their website right now and register for one. I’ll wait..
It’s time to catch you up on what we’ve been up to again! I’m linking up with Jill, Nikki, and Lynda for the ultimate coffee date! I’m late, again, thanks to work. I keep thinking this busy cycle is coming to an end, but then it doesn’t. It’s not as bad as it has been though, I’m actually able to snuggle my little ones and put them to bed at night. Mackenzie kind of broke my heart a little bit the other night. I was finishing up some work while Adam bathed them and when I went upstairs to help get them to bed, she said “Mommy, you have to work? Or is it cuddle time?” I hate that my busy work schedule affects them. I can’t complain too much though, I’m able to work from home most days and my boss is great about letting me take off when I need to.
Registration opened this morning for Walt Disney World annual passholders for the 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon, and I’m in!
